Thomas Orlowski passed away on Sunday, June 4, 2023 at the age of 92, with family and friends by his side in Virginia Beach, VA. He is survived by his two sons, Paul and Vincent; 14 grandchildren: Tara, Kristin, Tyler, Erika, Shawna, Sarah, Ashleigh, Chad, Hunter, Cory, Angelica, Michael, Jessica, and Matthew; and 18 great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his wife of 67 years, Joan, and his three children: Karen, Tom, and Jamey.
He dedicated his life to helping others and he left a lasting impression on everyone he met. After retiring from a full career at NOAA, you could always find him doing something with his hands (various crafts, working on automobiles, or doing construction projects). He loved volunteering at various charitable organizations, camping, hosting cookouts, and he was a founding member of his church. He was known to many as TKO and will be greatly missed by all.
Services will be held on Wednesday, June 14, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Virginia Beach.
